WISSEN SCHAFFT GELD - Aktien und Geldanlage. Wie Märkte und Finanzen wirklich funktionieren.

Wiederholt sich die Geschichte? Keine Ahnung, aber Lehren gibt Sie uns schon auf. Nach einem Jahr zum Vergessen herrscht nämlich bei vielen Endzeitstimmung bzgl. Big Tech Aktien. Erste Teilnehmer sehen in der großen Schwäche der wertvollsten Konzerne der Welt, also Big Tech Aktien,  das Ende einer Ära. Das Vorbild könnte der damalige Absturz der Nifty-Fifty-Konzerne in den 70ern sein. Kennst Du nicht? Viele der damaligen Champions wie Polaroid, Eastman Kodak & Co. kamen nie zurück. Ergeht es den heutigen Big Tech auch so? Was kann daraus lernen? Viel Spaß beim Hören, Dein Matthias Krapp

When Legendary CEOs Can't Find a Successor: A Conversation with William Cohan

Herbert Hoover said that “the business of America is business.” And for decades no business better defined that than General Electric. An industrial titan, everything about it, from credit to jet engines, from x-ray machines to lighting the nation, to bringing entertainment to the masses, defined the broad shoulders of American business and American capitalism. As might be expected, its executives also lived a good life. Like an episode of Succession, there were multiple private jets, cars always at the ready, and offices that make today's tech offices look provincial. There was the office staff waiting to fulfill every executive whim, and CEOs like Jack Welch and Jeffrey Immelt became household names and were seen on the covers of Fortune and BusinessWeek. Today, after 130 years GE, like many companies of its time, has all but disappeared. Like so many corporate icons of that era, Polaroid, Kodak, Dow, and US Steel, we were led to believe that “creative destruction” took them down; that Clayton Christensen's Innovator's Dilemma had caught up with them. But sometimes we discovered in hindsight that it was simply bad management, bad decisions, hubris, and the idle worship of what William James called the bitch goddess success that turned its ugly gaze on the company. This story, a cautionary tale about management men and money, is the story that best-selling author William Cohan tells in his latest book, Power Failure: The and Fall of An American Icon.

In this podcast I share the three levels of decision making that you should go through when you are making a complex career choice. I decided to talk directly to you, so you understand how to make better decisions that make a positive impact in your life. “Easy choices, hard life. Hard choices, easy life.” Jerzy GregorekWe don't account for our future selves.Story - I recently struggled to make a choice. I was asked to do a speaking gig for free. It was a good opportunity to get in front of hundreds of my ideal customers, but it would have taken me away from my family.The old me would have said yes to the opportunity. The present me tries to find the opportunity in the situation even when there doesn't seem like one.I could have said “No” asked for money, but I decided to go a different route. I asked if I could deliver the talk virtually. They said yes. I was still able to reach this audience, but I didn't have to fly to another city and be away from my family.We want easy choices. We want to say “yes” to please others.We often say no to opportunities because it's not worth our time and effort.Understanding how your past influences you choices.The cell phone industry was disrupted by the iPhone. Cell phones were free, but then Apple said, Nope, we are going to start charging for them. Now we pay $1K for a new phone, which was unheard of 20 years ago.The same thing happened to Polaroid with digital cameras. They wanted to believe that the industry wasn't changing.We must understand how we make decisions to disrupt how we make decisions. If we continue to make decisions the way we always have we will get similar results. If we want to make billion dollar decisions we must improve our decision framework, so we improve our habits and ultimately our ability to make quality choices.3 levels to better decisions faster.It starts with your brain.Then we move on to the heartThen we make out decision after checking in with our gut. Summary - It's easy to make quality decisions when you have a framework that works for your personality. Next time you make a more complicated decision try the Head, Heart and Gut framework and see how it helps you make a better choice for your future self.

The female nude dates back to the very beginning of art, but it remains a contested symbol. American photographer Renée Jacobs speaks to Eve Jackson about reclaiming it and using it as a form of queer and feminist activism. The artist also talks about the frightening power of female sexuality, why the terms of female and male gaze are reductive and the effect the city of Paris has on women. Jacobs' photo books are entitled "Paris" and "Polaroids" and her exhibition "Dreams & Desires" is being shown at the Sinner hotel in Paris.

Full shownotes and photos here: allthroughalens.com   On this episode we're taking a look at the new Leica M6 and what it means, if anything at all, to the film community and industry. Jess Hobbs (@jesshobbsphoto on IG) and Danielle Wrobleski (@girlwithtoomanycameras on IG) will help us out as we discuss this weirdly topical topic.  But before that, we'll be talking to Polaroid photographer Lisa Toboz (@lisatoboz on IG) about, ghosts, horror, and how her work isn't your typical instant snaps. We've also got the answering machine and a zine review. The New Leica M6 Doesn't Really Matter (Sort Of) Luxury camera company, Leica, recently brought back the M6, a 35mm rangefinder that they produced from 1984 through 2002. It seemed like huge news that a camera company that was mostly producing digital cameras decided to bring back a classic model. But what really caught everyone's attention was the price tag.  When it comes to film cameras,  your choices are essentially a shed or a mansion, a Yugo GV or a Lamborghini Countach,  a row boat or the yacht from the Duran Duran video. The big question right off that bat – Does it matter that Leica brought back the M6 – especially in light of them already offering two other film cameras? We talk to Jess Hobbs (IG @jesshobbsphotography) and Danielle Wrobleski (IG @girlwithtoomanycameras) all about this. Jess on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/JessHobbs Danielle: https://www.girlwithtoomanycameras.com/ Lisa Toboz Within the work of Lisa Toboz, you can see glimpses of uneasiness and even horror. She's influenced by Victorian Spirit photography, which we discussed last Halloween (and the Halloween before), as well as vernacular photographs (which we've also talked about). How do all of these things come together to form Lisa's saturated and beautiful Polaroid prints? Let's find out.

Absence of wishful thinking. No emulation of the ostrich.[35:00] He insisted that discipline must be self applied or will be externally imposed.[33:36] He found romance in adversity and solace in hard work.[36:00] Vannevar Bush on Leonardo da Vinci and Ben Franklin[42:33]  It is being realized with a thud that the world is going to be ruled by those who know how, in the fullest sense, to apply science.[44:45] We want an inventive company rather than an orderly company.[45:38] Tolerate genius.

We all agree that it's a fine film even if we don't understand why Sarah Connor would have sex with a man that she has no chemistry with, why Terminators have real dongs and hilariously fake heads, and what a South American kid is doing taking Polaroid pictures at a remote Mexican gas station. A storm of sequels and spin-offs are coming and that's all right as long as they keep to the source material and don't destroy the Terminator universe.

Glassel Park is a little neighborhood situated in Los Angeles, California, and is the home of John Huckert and John Matkowski who claim ghostly presences haunt their house. Almost 30 years ago strange things began occurring. Polaroids were eventually taken which contained messages that seemed to form out of nowhere, some of them containing Latin phrases.  So who or what is haunting the home?  Could it be connected to a murder?  Tune in to find out!

Today we hear our first Combat Story from a former Marine Corps Infantry Officer turned Civil Affairs Officer Frank “Gus” Biggio. Gus has a very unusual history in that he served his initial five years in the Marine Corps pre-9/11 and then got out to begin a very promising and successful career as an attorney.   Join our Patreon community for additional content at https://www.patreon.com/combatstory   In the years following 9/11, however, Gus felt the need to return to service and support the war effort. So rather than hold onto a profitable and cushy corporate career, Gus did what many of dream of doing and went back in.    He deployed in 2009 as a Civil Affairs officer which you can think of as a local mayor or governor of a particular area - in his case Nawa - where he settled local disputes, funded development efforts, compensated families for losses as a result of the war and far more. This required significant time outside the wire and in harm's way.    Do not be fooled into thinking that this is an administrative role. I spoke to now Sergeant Major David Wilson who led the patrols that protected Gus as he moved around the battlespace and he confirmed that it was anything but quiet and that Gus shifted the balance of power locally, driving significant counterinsurgency wins.   Gus chronicled his experience and the service of his fellow Marines in the book ‘The Wolves of Helmand: A View from Inside the Den of Modern War' (which is a great read) and is now directing proceeds to a charitable cause supporting efforts in Ukraine.   This is a wide-ranging discussion with the laughs, heartache and nostalgia of someone who gave up everything (including missing the birth of his second child) to be downrange with his fellow Marines and I hope you enjoy his Combat Story as much as I did.   #marines #veteran #helmand #army    Find Gus Online:  The Wolves of Helmand website https://wolvesofhelmand.com/   Show Notes:  0:00 - Intro  0:34 - Guest Introduction (Frank “Gus” Biggio)  2:43 - Interview begins  5:31 - Growing up, military family, and being a hell raiser  7:04 - Why Marines and the influential  people at that time  15:04 - Feeling like he's missing his big war, about Marines, and choosing to walk away   17:45 - Successful career as a civilian and the impact of 9/11  21:30 - Choosing to go back into the Marines in Civil Affairs unit  30:56 - What Civil Affairs is and the mission set  33:22 - Context for  Operation Khanjar a.k.a.

He then returned to his native Ohio where he earned a law degree from Case Western Reserve University, then worked in jobs in finance and law in New York City and Washington, DC, picking up a degree from Georgetown University along the way. Nearly ten years after first leaving the service, he rejoined the Marine Corps in October 2007. With his country at war, the same itch that drove him to volunteer in the 1990s drove his desire to serve again. His writing about the military and politics has appeared in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Washington Post, Weekly Standard, and the online journal, War on the Rocks. The Wolves of Helmand is his first book. Through his work, he spends his time between Switzerland and Washington, DC, but has always called Ohio home.    If you would like to learn more about Civil Affairs Officer, Frank “Gus” Biggio I suggest you look into our various other video clips: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCyApoJr-mNmdMNwdk22xEQ _________________________ Have I responded to all of your questions about Civil Affairs Officer, Frank “Gus” Biggio?

It's incredible what they're building. Try it for free by visiting Tegus.[7:15] Pieces of the Action offers his hard-won lessons on how to operate and manage effectively within complex organizations and drive ambitious, unprecedented programs to fruition.[8:54] Stripe Press Books:The Dream Machine by M. Mitchell WaldropThe Making of Prince of Persia: Journals 1985-1993 by Jordan Mechner.[9:24] Endless Frontier: Vannevar Bush, Engineer of the American Century by G. Pascal Zachary[10:40] Any exploration of the institutions that shape how we do research, generate discoveries, create inventions, and turn ideas into innovations inevitably leads back to Vannevar Bush.[11:26] No American has had greater influence in the growth of science and technology than Vannevar Bush.[12:23] That's why I'm going to encourage you to order this book —because when you pick it up and you read it —you're reading the words of an 80 year old genius. One of the most formidable and accomplished people that has ever lived— laying out what he learned over his six decade long career.[14:38] A Mind at Play: How Claude Shannon Invented the Information Age by Jimmy Soni and Rob Goodman (Founders #95)[15:12] Bootstrapping: Douglas Engelbart, Coevolution, and the Origins of Personal Computing by Thierry Bardini[15:48] I don't know what Silicon Valley will do when it runs out of Doug Engelbart's ideas. —  The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson. (Founders #157)[18:54] Bush points out that tipping points often rest with far-seeing, energetic individuals. We can be those individuals.[20:36] I went into this book with little more than a name and came out with the closest thing to a mentor someone you've never met can be.[20:58] We are not the first to face problems, and as we face them we can hold our heads high. In such spirit was this book written.[24:38] The essence of civilization is the transmission of the findings of each generation to the next.[29:00] This is not a call for optimism, it is a call for determination.[31:12] It is pleasant to turn to situations where conservatism or lethargy were overcome by farseeing, energetic individuals.[31:34] People are really a power law and that the best ones can change everything. —Sam Hinkie[33:46] There should never be, throughout an organization, any doubt as to where authority for making decisions resides, or any doubt that they will be promptly made.[34:32] You can drive great people by making the speed of decision making really slow. Why would great people stay in an organization where they can't get things done? They look around after a while, and they're, like, "Look, I love the mission, but I can't get my job done because our speed of decision making is too slow." — Invent and Wander: The Collected Writings of Jeff Bezos by Jeff Bezos and Walter Isaacson.(Founders #155)[38:36] Rigid lines of authority do not produce the best innovations.[38:42] Research projects flowered in pockets all around the company, many of them without Steve's blessing or even awareness.They'd come to Steve's attention only if one of his key managers decided that the project or technology showed real potential.In that case, Steve would check it out, and the information he'd glean would go into the learning machine that was his brain. Sometimes that's where it would sit, and nothing would happen. Sometimes, on the other hand, he'd concoct a way to combine it with something else he'd seen, or perhaps to twist it in a way to benefit an entirely different project altogether.This was one of his great talents, the ability to synthesize separate developments and technologies into something previously unimaginable. —Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart into a Visionary Leader by Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli (Founders #265)[40:56] He was so industrious that he became a positive annoyance to others who felt less inclined to work.  —Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print, and Power by James McGrath Morris.

(Founders #138)[48:21] Difficulties are often encountered in bringing an invention into production and use.[48:47] An invention has some of the characteristics of a poem.It is said that a poet may derive real joy out of making a poem, even if it is never published, even if he does not recite it to his friends, even if it is not a very good poem.No doubt, one has to be a poet to understand this.In the same way, an inventor can derive real satisfaction out of making an invention, even if he never expects to make a nickel out of it, even if he knows it is a bit foolish, provided he feels it involves ingenuity and insight.An inventor invents because he cannot help it, and also because he gets quiet fun out of doing so.Sometimes he even makes money at it, but not by himself. One has to be an inventor to understand this.One evening in Dayton, I dined alone with Orville Wright.During a long evening, we discussed inventions we had made that had never amounted to anything. He took me up to the attic and showed me models of various weird gadgets.I had plenty of similar efforts to tell him about, and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.Neither of us would have thus spilled things except to a fellow practitioner, one who had enjoyed the elation of creation and who knew that such elation is, to a true devotee, independent of practical results.So it is also, I understand, with poets.[51:28] Against The Odds: An Autobiography by James Dyson (Founders #200)[52:21] When picking an industry to enter, my favorite rule of thumb is this: Pick an industry where the founders of the industry—the founders of the important companies in the industry—are still alive and actively involved. — The Pmarca Blog Archive Ebook by Marc Andreessen. (Founders #50)[57:18] If a company operates only under patents it owns, and infringes on no others, its monopoly should not be disturbed, and the courts so hold. An excellent example is Polaroid Corporation. Founded by Edwin Land, one of the most ingenious men I ever knew (and also one of the wisest), it has grown and prospered because of his inventions and those of his team.[1:00:46] I came to the realization that they knew more about the subject than I did. In some ways, this was not strange. They were concentrating on it and I was getting involved in other things.[1:01:31] P.T. Barnum: An American Life by Robert Wilson.

At around 9:30 on the morning of September 20th, 1988, 19-year-old Tara Calico left her New Mexico home and set out for her daily 17-mile bike ride along highway 47. Before leaving, she playfully asked her mother, Patty Doel, to come and get her if she wasn't back by noon, because Tara had a lot of other things to do that day, and she needed to be kept on schedule. Tara did not return by noon, in fact, Tara Calico would never come home again, leaving behind multiple eyewitnesses who had seen her that morning, and very few clues as to what had happened to her, including pieces of her walkman and suspicious-looking bike tracks. Tara's disappearance is considered to be an enduring mystery, but reportedly for those who live in Tara's hometown of Belen New Mexico, it's not a mystery at all. In fact, according to Melinda Esquibel, a former classmate of Tara's and podcast host, “What makes the town charming is the same thing that makes it kind of scary.

Today we are breaking down Polaroid. For 30 years, Polaroid monopolized the instant photography industry, producing one Nobel-caliber breakthrough after another. As their products dazzled, sales grew from just under $1.5 million in 1948 to $1.4 billion in 1978. Today, the business is a shadow of its former self but the lessons from its history and especially from the founder endure. Edwin Land is not the most familiar name in business history, but he has had an outsized influence on the world in which we live. In particular, he was Steve Jobs's hero. To break down Polaroid, I'm joined by David Senra, who studies history's greatest entrepreneurs through his Founders podcast. David is uniquely qualified to distill the lessons and secrets behind Edwin Land and his life's work, Polaroid.   For the full show notes, transcript, and links to the best content to learn more, check out the episode page here.   -----   This episode is brought to you by Tegus.

What's up! It's episode 97 of Payne Points of Wealth and markets are melting down. The fear is real, but could this fear go from fear to FOMO? We're going to discuss exactly what's going on. As we're recording this FedEx saw its stock drop 20%, and the CEO thinks that the world is going into a global recession. We might have a different point of view. We'll talk about that. On the Tipping Point today, we're going to talk about some of the most significant strategy mistakes that Wall Street loves to push on you that you should avoid at all costs to make sure you stay on your path to financial independence. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... What side of the rip of your face rally will you be on? [1:25] Is it light at the end of the tunnel or a train? [3:52] Time to load up on the municipal bond market [8:15] The Tipping Point [11:21] Are you taking actions that you'll regret forever? [14:09] Hidden Facts of Finance [18:53] Betting on a sure thing? Is it time to load up on the municipal bond market? The way these governments keep spending money on state, local, and federal levels it's only a matter of time before they try to jack up our tax rates again. We've got to look at the advantages of tax-free income.  First of all, you want to be certain that you have a portfolio with permits and definitions. We want to know what we're making and when our money comes due. But when you look at the equivalent yield of a tax-free bond right now, in some cases, depending on your state income tax, you're getting anywhere from a 5 - 8% return. How much return do you need to achieve all your lifetime goals? If you can do it with more certainty, why not?  This week on the tipping point: Strategy mistakes During times when it's very volatile and uncertain in the markets, like right now, there are a lot of strategies that Wall Street loves to sell you. We know from experience that they just don't work. We can't time the market and a lot of people tend to project the future based on their most recent experience. When there are all-time record highs, like the markets just had this past January, nobody wants to panic out. You only want to panic or time the market when the market's are down and you feel like it will only continue to get worse.  The problem is you end up taking actions that you'll regret forever. You wouldn't believe how many folks out there have liquidated their portfolio and gone into something like an annuity. We've been analyzing more annuities the past three months than ever. It's kind of like going back into the arms of an ex, it feels comfortable, it feels good, but the reality is you broke up for a reason. You're not going to get what you're looking for from the relationship! This week's hidden facts of finance Wedbush Securities estimates that there are now a billion iPhones worldwide, 240 million of which are at least 3-1/2 years old. This may explain why Apple earnings are expected to continue creeping higher by single-digit percentages in the years ahead. We think of meme stocks as something unique, but the 1960s were called the Go-go 60s' for a reason. The Nifty 50, the glamor stocks, the concept stocks, the conglomerates, and the gunslinger fund managers who touted them were rock stars. When the Nifty 50 expired in the early 70s' they had sky-high valuations that rival anything we've seen today with Xerox trading at 49 times forward earnings, Avon at 65 times forward earnings, and Polaroid at 90 times forward earnings. History may not repeat, but markets are made up of people and they certainly do. Dividends have accounted for 40% of stock market returns since 1930 and 54% during decades when inflation has been high like today. When inflation has been high, the stocks that have increased their dividends the most have outperformed the overall market. Dividend payments help make the stock market returns less volatile. The average German household is paying nearly 13 times more for power than in January of 2020, or about $38,000 versus $3000. Wow. That's a huge jump in energy prices.

The bad news is that you now have zero excuse for not being the most knowledgeable in any subject you want because it's right there at your fingertips.[29:00] Why his work on the telegraph was so important to everything that happened later in his life: The germs of many ideas and stratagems perfected by him in later years were implanted in his mind when he worked at the telegraph. He described this phase of his life afterward, his mind was in a tumult, besieged by all sorts of ideas and schemes. All the future potentialities of electricity obsessed him night and day. It was then that he dared to hope that he would become an inventor.[31:29] Edison's insane schedule: Though he had worked up to an early hour of the morning at the telegraph office, Edison began reading the Experimental Researches In Electricity (Faraday's book) when he returned to his room at 4 A.M. and continued throughout the day that followed, so that he went back to his telegraph without having slept.

Renehan Jr. (Founders #258)[48:00] It's this idea where you can identify an opportunity because you have deep knowledge about one industry and you see that there is an industry developing  parallel to the industry that you know about. Jay Gould saw the importance of the telegraph industry in part because telegraph lines were laid next to railraod tracks.[49:17] Edison describes the fights between the robber barons as strange financial warfare.[54:35] You should build a company that you actually enjoy working in.[55:47] Don't make this mistake:John Ott who served under Edison for half a century, at the end of his life described the "sacrifices" some of Edison's old co-workers had made, and he commented on their reasons for so doing."My children grew up without knowing their father," he said. "When I did get home at night, which was seldom, they were in bed.""Why did you do it?" he was asked."Because Edison made your work interesting. He made me feel that I was making something with him. I wasn't just a workman. And then in those days, we all hoped to get rich with him.”[57:26] Don't try to sell a new technology to an exisiting monopoly.
